MF Global Not in Compliance With Customer Funds, CME Group Says

Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- MF Global Holdings Ltd., the broker that filed for bankruptcy yesterday and is the subject of regulatory probes over funds missing from client accounts, isn’t in compliance with CME Group Inc. and Commodity Futures Trading Commission rules.

“MF Global is not in compliance with CME and CFTC regulations related to customer segregation” of funds, Craig Donohue, CME Group’s chief executive officer, said on a conference call today with analysts. The exchange is working with the CFTC to determine the extent of the problem, he said.

CME Group is the world’s largest futures market.
